it 4 stars because Everybody Hurts In the Shadow of Empires is my first love and I don t wantt to feel as4 stars because Everybody Hurts s my first love and I don t want t to feel as The 101 Dalmatians it s been replacedn my heartI might have skipped some of the mapping out sections because From Pocahontas to Power Suits: Everything You Need to Know about Women's History in America it just made me huff about how I never have enough money to travel High five for the suburban Florida sectionOh and my NAMEs n the a I love this book nearly as much
I loved Everybody Hurts were so many references as I loved Everybody Hurts There were so many references bands I love and listen to and as I read t I learnt a whole lot about the scenes they all came from and what made their home towns specialI think my favourite chapter was probably the chapter on Long Island due to the fact Only Say the Word it talked so much about Taking Back S The snark heres distracting What Sweet Music on Moonlight Ridge is the author trying to prove witht It s like reading the blog of a too cool for you but actually just super nsecure high school girl Bleck You know those episodes of The Simpsons where Lisa meets a smart and sassy but super cool older girl and wants desperately to be her friend Reading this book was like listening to the dialogue the writers give to these characters or maybe like reading their LiveJournals It s all snark parenthetical asides and carefully made casual name drops n the hopes of establishing credDon t read t expecting to learn much about the actual music that makes or made regional scenes It s about making fun of the people behind the music and those who enjoy t Many of the histories are Talking Cures and Placebo Effects incomplete Lawrence Kansas apparently never had any bands until Boys Life showed up you can say what you want about the likes of Paw but they drew attention to this town way before the Get Up Kids did or glossed over nothing has happenedn Seattle since grunge apparently but there sure are plenty of hipsters to make fun ofI realize I m not n the target demographic for this book but.
